Senate confirms appointments to state commissions
PIERRE — Mary Anne Boyd, of Yankton, received approval Wednesday from the state Senate for her reappointment to the South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks Commission.
The vote was 35-0 to confirm the governor's decision.
"She is a great listener and advocate," Sen. Gary Cammack, R-Union Center, said about Boyd.
Senators also consented unanimously to two other choices made by Gov. Dennis Daugaard.
• The appointment of Jamie Huizenga, of Pierre, to the South Dakota Lottery Commission; and
• Reappointment of James Breckenridge, of Sioux Falls, to the South Dakota Building Authority.
Lt. Gov. Matt Michels moved to Thursday the re-appointment of Steven Zellmer, of Rapid City, to the building authority.
Sen. Lance Russell, R-Hot Springs, requested the change.
